Hillary Clinton released a doctor's letter saying she's 'fit to serve as president'


The Clinton campaign released a letter today written by Lisa Bardack, Hillary Clinton's doctor, that detailed the candidates health over the last year and states that she is certainly healthy enough to be president.   

The Summary:

Bardack's letter states that:

  • Hillary Clinton's blood levels are stable
  • Her allergy flare-ups this year are similar to those in the past
  • She had an ear and sinus infection last January for which she was successfully treated
  • She was diagnosed and treated for pneumonia this month
  • A physical revealed all her vitals to be normal
  • She is in excellent mental condition

The Verdict: 

Bardack concludes:

 "My overall impression is that Mrs. Clinton has remained healthy and has not developed new medical conditions this year other than a sinus and ear infection and her recently diagnosed pneumonia. 

"She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest. She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States."

Meanwhile, Clinton's Republican challenger, Donald Trump, continues to refuse to release his medical records. Instead, Trump has opted to appear on the Dr. Oz talk show to discuss his personal health regimen. The episode will air tomorrow. 

The release of the letter has some online joking about the campaign. 

Others are still very skeptical about Clinton's health.
